Seeking AMVers For Article

Post by jowinterfeld » Tue Mar 01, 2016 1:03 pm

Good Day, everyone!

Are you an AMV editor/creator or a die-hard fan of a certain editor/creator? I want to talk with you. My name is Jo, and I'm a writer for MyAnimeList.net. I have been assigned to write about AMVs and the culture itself, so I am asking you all for help. Even if you are not an editor or creator, I still want your input about what AMVs mean to you and any AMVs that are particularly special to you. I am mostly looking for those to interview, but if your AMV work is consistent and highly-rated across the board, your work will be considered for placement in the article.
If you are interested in helping or being interviewed, please inbox me. I appreciate your time and attention to this, and I hope to hear from you.
Thanks!

I've been on the Org for 15 years, I was involved in the IRC/Mailing List before that, and so I know quite a bit about the history. But there are folks who know more, like Vlad, because they were older so their memories might be more complete.

Hey, everyone! Thank you all so much for the responses. Unfortunately, the window is now closed, and the article has been finished. I have attached it here so you all can have a look at it. http://myanimelist.net/featured/1509
I really want to expand it, and I will talk to my editors about doing so via my MAL blog. I feel as though 700 words does not cover everything I wanted to write about. Please let me know what you think, but please don't rip into me too much.
Thanks again!

Man that really is too short. Not enough examples and not enough information...use this, it is a good resource for the period until 2001:

Yeah, I would be lying if I said I was a bit on the disappointing side, especially the part about the community. I know what Shin's full answer was to the questions about it, and it was very positive for the most part so the quote from him was taken very out of context, which I don't feel is super fair since it puts the community in a bad light. In addition, the article was extremely short despite how many questions we answered...

Ouch... that context with Shin's comment really does make things sound bad. I know I didn't respond to this, not sure how ingrained in the community I am anymore, but I can say that while I do see cliques from time to time when we all gather at con (which for me is only AWA) all of that seems to disappear. I can use MaboroshiStudios as an example. Guy is a complete dick online but once he's at con he's one of the coolest guys to party with (love ya Joe :P ) Moreso then any other community I know of (especially cosplay) the editing community is way more inclusive and friendly at-con despite the 'clique-ish' or 'elitest' fiscade the online community seems to display.

I started going to AWA because of two groups (which had some overlap), one of which was AMVs. Patrick Bohnet (Quu) and I have known each other since 1998, seeing him pass was really hard on me, because he was the one who got me into AMVs. Jingoro and I share a love of KOR. I knew EK both from my time at UT (she worked on campus with my best friend), through AMVs, and through the other AWA group of which I was part. I cannot speak highly enough of MexicanJunior and Carlos (who also went to school with me, and worked in the same comm school building as I did). There definitely used to be an in-person community. That said, I still see dokool a lot, because we both live in Tokyo. :3
